Welcome to this unique ecological residence. The owners are Marie-Louise and her husband Dr. Benoit VANHERCKE, a Belgian doctor and former Medical Advisor of the World Health Organization (WHO). Both are residents here themselves.

El espacio
The 2 stages Residence "Au Paradis des Canaris" is a charming ecological residence in Dakar. This quiet and secure property is conveniently located near “Sacré Coeur Collège".
Our flowery rooftop terrace is the preferred place to rest, not only for our tenants, but for the neighbourhood birds as well! It's an oasis of calm, with fresh and clean air. Wifi is available up here, too, so you can surf the internet at the same time you enjoy the sun and the singing birds.

This residence CONTRIBUTES TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT in two different ways: (1) By showing that it is possible to live comfortably while using much less water and electricity, and (2) it gives environmentally-conscious travellers the opportunity to ACT, by opting for eco-housing during their stay in Dakar.
This is why the residence is particularly popular -and often inhabited- by Officers of the UNITED NATIONS. (The location of this property is ideal for people who work in the "Les Almadies" neighbourhood, which is only 15 minutes from the property because of little traffic in the morning and in the evening).

The air-conditioned and fully-furnished 180 m² apart has 5 rooms, including a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, which each a double bed (a single bed can be added) . There are three bathrooms. There is also a balcony terrace.
The property utilizes SOLAR PANELS in place of a generator for short-term power outages.

Otros aspectos a destacar
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING NOTES (ESPECIALLY N° 4 AND N° 5):

1) CANACLA: The residence "Au Paradis des Canaris" is the home of the “Canacla,” an ingenious and environmentally-friendly handwashing device that uses very little water (only 100 ml). They are located in multiple places on the property, including several in your residence.
2) WATER FILTER: A water filter has been installed, as it is not advisable to drink tap water without filtering. Tap water is poured into the upper compartment of the filter. In this compartment are two filter cartridges that allow water molecules, but not germs, to pass through: the water in the lower compartment is drinking water of high quality and free of microbes. Additionally, the water is oxygenated as it drops into the lower compartment and therefore tastes better (unlike boiled water that has a bland taste, precisely because during the boiling process the oxygen is dissipated).
The water filter avoids the need to purchase bottled water. Purchasing bottled water has three major disadvantages: (1) No filling date is listed, therefore it is impossible to know how long the plastic water bottles were stored...often IN THE SUN!, before reaching the consumer (2) the high cost: 100 times more than the filtered water (3) In Dakar, empty bottles are not recycled and have become a terrible environmental problem
3) ECOLOGICAL- ENGINEERDS WC TOILET
All bathrooms are equipped with an ecologically-engineered WC toilet. This change, simple and efficient, saves tens of liters of water per day. Many tenants take photos and, once back home, mimic the system
4) A DEPOSIT OF 30 EURO is requested.
To encourage tenants to remember to return the keys at the end of the lease, a deposit of 30 euros is requested. This sum is returned when the keys are returned at the end of the stay
5) THE CHARGES ARE NOT INCLUDID IN THE RENT
It’s a lot easier to adopt an eco-minded mentality and avoid the waste of gas, water and electricity if the ecological stimulus is accompanied by an economic stimulus. Thus, the consumption of gas, water and electricity are NOT included in the rent and the tenant is responsible for paying these charges.
Utilities are priced as follows:
-Gas: 600 CFA francs per kg
-Water: 1,500 FCFA per m³ (= 1,000 liters)
-Electricity: 250 FCFA per KWh
In order to determine usage, each accommodation has his own water meter and an electricity meter.
At the beginning of the guest’s stay, the tenant pays a DEPOSIT to cover future water and electricity consumption. The deposit is 5,000 FCFA (40,000 FCFA if the tenant decides to use also the RED air conditioning as well as the ventilators).
After one week, a second advance is paid. The amount of the second instalment is based on the length of rental as well as consumption during the first week.
At the end of the rental, the final tally is done. If the tenant has consumed less than expected (which is great!), the tenant will be refunded the difference. If the tenant has used more than the amount of the deposit, the tenant is responsible to pay the difference.

SOLAR ENERGY: In case of failure of the electrical grid, the basic operation of the unit (light, Internet, low-energy fan) is made possible by solar energy. The price for this service is 50 FCFA per hour.
GENSET: In case of prolonged power outage (which has never happened!), the backup generator may be used to ensure the functioning of fridges. Tenants will be required to contribute to the purchase of generator fuel. (The generator consumes 1 liter of diesel fuel per hour)

6) RED AIR CONDITIONING (SPLIT AIR CONDITIONER)
Split air conditioners are available in the apartment: the two bedrooms are fitted with air conditioners.
However, most of our tenants use the GREEN AIR CONDITIONING (ceiling fans/fans) and choose to avoid the use of the split air conditioner. They do so for 2 reasons:
- avoid health problems related to air-conditioning units (such as respiratory infections, due to the fact that air from the AC unit is not only very dry but also RECYCLED (> has a high concentration of microbes).
- on environmental grounds: the AC uses a colossal amount of energy

7) GENERAL CLEANING
Every day (except Sundays and public holidays), our trusted service technician cleans the apartment (but not to do the dishes or to clean the stove).
8) BEDDING IS CHANGES ONCE A WEEK

9) PERSONAL LAUNDRY can be washed, dried and ironed. This cleaning service is of high quality and the prices are very affordable.

10) POSTAL SERVICE
The residence has a mail box, which guests are free to use.
The following address has to be mentioned on the envelope:

Je m'appelle Marie-Louise KALOMBA-VANHERCKE. Je suis née au Congo (RDC), au Kasaï. La date du 23 avril 1970 est très importante pour moi: c'est le jour où le jeune médecin belge, le Dr Benoit Vanhercke a quitté la Belgique pour venir travailler au Kasaï... où il est devenu mon mari en 1974. Depuis lors nous formons un couple harmonieux et joyeux (voir la photo prise... 41 ans plus tard, avec 2 de nos petits enfants). Nous sommes un "couple black & white", une infirmière africaine et un médecin-hygiéniste belge, ancien conseiller médical de l'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS). Notre "mission": le développement durable. Nous concrétisons cet engagement, au Sénégal, par deux petits projets: la promotion du CANACLA et la promotion du logement écologique. Si vous tapez sur votre moteur de recherche le mot CANACLA, vous trouverez le site officiel du Canacla. Vous y verrez ce que nous faisons et ce que nous aimons le plus: combiner "santé" avec "beauté". C'est depuis 2 ans que nous mettons en location nos logements écologiques via Airbnb et nous sommes heureux que 99 % des personnes qui ont logé chez nous étaient très contentes de leur séjour. Dans le quartier Baobabs, où se trouve "Le Château de Sable", les gens ont gardé l'habitude de se saluer. Si vous êtes à pieds dans la rue Biyar, pour la première fois, et vous rencontrez un riverain debout ou assis devant sa maison, il (elle) attend avec impatience votre "Bonjour!" ou "Asalaam Malekum!" Cela leur fait chaud au cœur, et il (elle), ne manquera pas de vous répondre avec plaisir "Malekum Salaam!" A partir de ce moment vous n'êtes plus un étranger, mais un des leurs!
